Holidays in the Austrian Mountains
Stay High Above the Valley Floor
Autumn is the best season for a holiday in the mountains far away from the daily worries. You rather get going! In the mountains, winter can pay you a cold visit quite early in the year. You should be faster.
Far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, you can calm down. Take a deep breath while you’re sitting on the bench in front of the cabin, basking in the autumn sun. Gaze at the spectacular mountain view. Feel energised and alive after a hike. Hiking trails, Alpine huts and mountain cabins are not frequented by tourists in their sneakers anymore. The tiled stove and the sauna have been heated up. A fragrant cup of herbal tea is a warming treat for body, mind and soul. You’ve deserved some relaxation before a long winter begins.
Austria’s Most Beautiful Mountain Cabins and Chalets
DISCOVER SOMETHING SPECIAL
A holiday in a mountain cabin or chalet in Austria can be described in many ways. What it’s certainly not: ordinary or even dull. The alpine pastures that are dotted with cabins are the perfect antidote to the hectic and noisy life in the valleys. They are some of the few remaining retreats for those who seek tranquility, simple living or immersion in nature.
Choose the place that suits you best. There’s room for you even in the smallest of cabins. Would you like to get cosy in a candle-lit, gnarly cabin and snuggle up in a bed of freshly raked hay? In the morning, you can rub the sleep from your eyes with some icy water from the fountain. Or would you like to celebrate New Year’s Eve in a mountain cabin together with a bunch of friends? The snow shovel is for free. Do you prefer a spacious hunting lodge in the woods or a mountain farm where time seems to stand still? Do you fancy a luxurious break in lofty heights? A holiday in the Austrian Mountains can also look like this: satellite TV, sauna, duvets and a ski lift next door. The fresh, clean air of the mountains with a touch of luxury. Can you think of a better mix?
Tell us, when’s the last time that you saw the bright band of stars, the Milky Way, on a clear night sky? Honestly? You don’t remember? From our mountain cabins and chalets, you can see thousands and thousands of stars. Unspoiled by light pollution, these are some of the best spots for stargazers.
In the mountains, you get a different perspective on many things. You can see the valleys from above. In winter, they are often covered under a blanket of fog. But here, the sun is shining and your sight gazes at the breathtaking panoramic view well above the thick fog. The clean air up here is also something very special. The best thing is getting up in the early morning, stepping out the front door and taking a deep breath. Do you know how it feels? Well, it simply makes your heart sing! You’ll see!

A PINZGAUER COW AND HER WAY UP TO THE ALPINE PASTURES
Hi, I’m Lorena. I’m a tough Pinzgauer cow and I’m absolutely thrilled! Why? My farmer has allowed me to spend this summer in the mountains again, on the alpine pastures next to the mountain cabin. Last year, he even equipped me with a GoPro camera that he placed right between my two horns! That’s why you can come along on my 2.5-hour hike from the valley up to the mountain pastures - in just 2.5 minutes. What was it like? Find out in the video.
I’m looking forward to meeting you on the alpine pasture!
Traditional Mountain Cabins
Where so-called Senner used to spend their summer in solitude, herding the cattle and making butter and cheese from the fresh milk every day, you can now spend your holiday. These former simple dwellings of the alpine dairymen and herdsmen are not in traditional use any longer. They have been renovated and transformed into convenient accommodation.
Some of the mountain cabins have been reconstructed at their original locations, in remote areas of outstanding natural beauty. A number of cabins provides spa areas. There’s one thing that hasn’t changed over time: you need to cater for yourself. There’s no place that offers food or drink nearby. Most of the time, there’s not even a single building within sight. For the majority of guests, that’s not a problem at all. Quite the opposite: that’s exactly what they are looking for! A traditional mountain cabin is one of the few remaining places where you can find authenticity.
Redesigned Mountain Farms
Back in the old days, mountain farms were a common sight in the alpine regions. Over time, a lot of them fell out of use due to different reasons. Some of these former mountain farms have been renovated and redesigned to fit a new use: accommodation for guests. They are mostly located at lower altitudes than our other mountain cabins and chalets which means that they are easily accessible. The picture-perfect scenery is beyond comparison! Travel back in time, soak up history and get a feeling for what life on a mountain farm was like, back then. If only the walls could talk...
Holidays in a Holiday Home
A number of mountain cabins belong to family farms in Austria. A range of holiday homes for you to relax and enjoy your holiday high up in the mountains. A mountain range of adventures awaits you on top. Authentic travel experiences and the pure joy of living during your holiday.
Once you check in at one of the holiday homes set in the most picturesque locations, you become aware of it: With your farm holiday, you’ve booked a time to relax and rejoice. In a time where tomorrow is almost already yesterday’s story, a lot of people are longing for a break and would like to take a step back.
STAFFED MOUNTAIN CABINS
Are you usually very busy with fun activities during your holiday? No worries. We also have something for those who don’t have time to cater for themselves and still want to experience the mountain way of life: mountain restaurants.
In these staffed mountain cabins, you can enjoy meals prepared with fresh, locally grown ingredients. A hearty snack platter, a savoury pork roast or Austria’s most traditional dessert, Kaiserschmarren - nobody will go to bed starving in our mountain restaurants.
Of course, you will also get all sorts of drinks. Are you intrigued? Then, simply find your favourite mountain cabin, book your holiday, check in and enjoy!
